This is usually caused when the CV's DMCL specifies the use of MEMORY CACHE for one or more files. MEMORY CACHE replaced DATASPACE specification as of 16.0. By default, IDMS will try to allocate the file in a 64-bit Memory Cache. If this fails we will try to allocate a Dataspace. If that fails the file doesn't get cached. Either you don't have 64-bit memory available at all or it is limited by the opsys parameter MEMLIMIT, so that the file(s) accessed by the jobs in question cannot cache the file in 64-bit memory. You can see this if you run an IDMSLOOK on the DMCL.
